Josh Blue has been a fast-rising star since first appearing on Comedy Central’s “Mind of Mencia” before gaining the attention and endearment of the country as a favorite on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”

Josh is a diverse and triumphant individual — hilarious stand-up comedian, stand-out guest star on television, talented artist, and stellar U.S. Paralympic Soccer player – refusing to bow to any of the challenges that come from living with Cerebral Palsy. Blue jokes, “I realize that people are going to stare so I want to give them something to stare at.” Josh uses his incredible sense of humor and versatile persona to defy stereotypes and encourage others to overcome their preconceived notions about people who are considered “disabled.” His unique brand of “reverse teasing” affords him the great joy of “humbling condescending people.”

Josh’s stand-out performances at the 2004 Las Vegas Comedy Festival earned him $10,000 as Grand Prize Winner of the Royal Flush Comedy Competition. He has appeared on NBC, MSNBC, FOX News, and Fox Sports Net.

In 2005, Josh emerged as a major force on the college circuit with Main Stage Showcases that garnered rave reviews and a helped earn him a nomination for BEST DIVERSITY EVENT OF 2006 by APCA. A Lewis & Clark College programmer remarked “Not only did Josh Blue receive a standing ovation, but he was the funniest comedian of the entire three day convention.”

From comedy clubs and theater engagements to college campuses and corporate events, wherever he takes the stage Josh elicits a wildly appreciative crowd response. His uncanny ability to improvise with any audience coupled with comedic timing rarely found in a performer of his age has enabled Josh to rapidly develop a fan base across the country. His rise is perhaps best described by a well known club owner following a recent show when he exclaimed: “Josh is rolling like a ROCK STAR!”
